My client is already employed and I told her that a key concern in the interview would be a plausible explanation for why she would leave her current job to take another.

In summary, managers don’t take unnecessary risks with their careers…and neither should candidates. Both parties want and need time to develop rapport with each other to see if there is a good fit.

If somebody is said to be once bitten twice shy, it means that someone who has been hurt or who has had something go wrong will be far more careful the next time.

Managers are human beings, and their priority is to protect and promote their own career. That is why they will not hire until they feel safe with you.

she wanted to know was why my client was willing to leave her current job and relocate to Toronto. This became the focus of the interview.

In most cases, a manager is not going to jeopardize their career by hiring somebody they don’t feel safe with.

They are bundles of self-interest, just like the rest of us, so they tend to look after their self-interest first, which is usually organized around the priorities of protecting and promoting their own careers.

One of the easiest ways to do that is to minimize risk. Since you as a job seeker are a risk, the easiest way to minimize that risk is to NOT hire you.

Both sides should exercise due diligence! If the interview does not produce a level of comfort, then an employer will check references, do background checks, and resort to other methods to ensure a “safe” hire. Candidates should do the same—talk to previous employees, current employees, and so on to determine if the fit is good.

In other words, a manager will not hire you until they feel SAFE with you. We live in a litigious society, and managers must protect themselves from litigation. One of the easiest ways to do that is to minimize risk. Since you as a job seeker are a risk, the easiest way to minimize that risk is to NOT hire you.

The manager told my client that she had fired the last person! Now, this important fact never showed up in the job posting but it was the real “agenda” for this manager’s hiring decision.
